That is a nice addition to your shop. That's one of the only machines you can leave unattended and it will shut itself off.

Yeah it took me awhile to get that switch adjusted so it would but it does shot off nice when done cutting. I have used big industrial saws and I think I can say this is my favorite. Cuts very strait and a blade lasts me many cuts. Easier to change blades too. I welded another cut support on the rear so steel doesn't just fall. That was the best thing I did to it lol. About the only other thing I want to do is add a cylinder to the arm to control its drop when cutting angle iron and so I can lock the arm in up position.

Looks like a beast, John! What other mods did you make to it? Mine was on a home-built stand that I needed to stiffen up as the whole thing would shake like crazy when the saw got going, and had I kept it I'd probably have slowed it down some, which would have also helped the shaking. The blade advancement mechanism also needed some work--occasionally it would jump teeth, with the result that the saw would really bite into the workpiece, which usually snapped the blade. Still, an automatic saw of any sort is a huge step forward for a small shop--it enables you to do fabrications that you just wouldn't attempt if it meant sawing all the pieces by hand!

I more than doubled the main pully size and that slowed it down a lot. It still cuts just as fast slow and there us no walking of the saw lol. Yeah mine used to walk across the shop too. I also had a lot of gear noise. I replaced the bushings in all the shafts and pins. Easy job they were all standard size at the hardware store. There are 4 screws on top the arm and 4 on one side. Those screws adjust slop in the cut arm. Make sure the brass plates inside the arm are good and tighten that up. Took care of all the slop in mine. She cuts quiet and smooth now. Oh and don't bother buying blades for this type if saw. I just buy regular band saw blades and cut them into pieces. Use a cut off wheel since blade are High carbon steel.

What length blade does that take? I've got an older one that takes a 10" or a 12" blade. A good new blade cost about as much as I gave for the whole thing.

well mine takes 13 inch blades. I go around to machine shops and ask them to save there busted band saw blades.. they usually have lots of life left on them for what I cut. then I take them home and use my dewalt chop saw to cut them up in 13'' pieces and drill a hole in each end and there ya go. I usually get about 10 blades out of each band saw blade and I pay nothing.

John: you may have not made enough posts to get past the limit to enable you to post pictures. If you put a request in to the moderators in the "site comments" forum they can remove it for you--it's meant to keep the usual spammers and scammers out, not legitimate posters. I had an old Craftsman power hacksaw that gave me good service until I got a bandsaw--I'd be interested in seeing what you have.
